Certified Cloud Technology Professional

A Certified Cloud Technology Professional has demonstrated proficiency in the concepts, IT resources, and implementation mechanisms used to assemble and evolve cloud platforms via common utilization models, such as Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS). An understanding of fundamental cloud computing concepts and terminology are second nature to the Cloud Technology Professional, as well as the advantages, disadvantages, and general implications of using and combining common cloud computing mechanisms and cloud security mechanisms. Furthermore, the Cloud Technology Professional must possess the ability to associate cloud computing mechanisms to the realization of specific characteristics, benefits, and goals assigned to cloud environments and cloud-based solutions. In addition, the Cloud Technology Professional needs to be able to identify the common threats and challenges to cloud services and supporting IT resources, in order to leverage cloud security mechanisms and when necessary, moderate the use of cloud computing mechanisms. The Cloud Technology Professional track is comprised of CCP Modules 1, 2 and 3, the outlines for which are provided in the upcoming pages. Depending on the exam format chosen, attaining the Cloud Technology Professional certification can require passing a single exam or multiple exams. Upon achieving the accreditation, certification holders receive a formal digital certificate and an Acclaim/Credly digital badge with an account that supports the online verification of certification status.
